A Halifax man has been handed a fine of $2,422.00 under the Health Protection Act for non-essential travel outside of the municipality after RCMP say he was speeding along the Cabot Trail earlier this week.

An officer pulled his car over at around 6:30 p.m. Monday in St. Joseph Du Moine, south of Cheticamp.

Mounties say he was heading to Cape Breton Highlands National Park to hike the Skyline Trail.
